Seasonal Chill Sets In

Receipts fell off sharply during Week 32 (Jan. 2-8), sliding from the hefty $11 million take of the previous holiday week.

With five fewer productions than the previous week, the slim 18-show slate grossed $8,556,270, a 26.5% drop, and attendance totaled 176,269, a 19.3% slide.

All shows dropped in receipts from the previous week’s holiday highs, except for “Sunset Boulevard,” which was back to eight performances and jumped $32,783.

Yankees’ hibernates

“Damn Yankees” began an eight-week hiatus, hoping to avoid the worst of the winter doldrums. The show reopens Feb. 28 with Jerry Lewis.

The Stephen Sondhein/James Lapine musical “Passion” closed at the Plymouth Theater, as did the long running “Guys and Dolls.” The revival, directed by Jerry Zaks, logged 1,143 performances at the Martin Beck Theater.

Receipts for the musicals totaled $7,787,525, 91% of the Broadway total, with paid attendance of 157,603, at 92.4% of musical capacity. Plays tallied $768,745, 9% of the total, with attendance of 18,666 at 81.3% of play capacity.

Average ticket prices were $48.54 for all shows, $49.41 for musicals and $41.18 for plays.
